Client in her mid-50s was working for a pet manufacturer when she fell, injuring her right arm. After a subsequent surgery she developed complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). CRPS typically occurs after crush injuries or as a complication of surgery. Due to her CRPS, the client was restricted to no occupational use of her dominant right arm. The Pitts Law Firm successfully obtained medical and vocational evidence that the client was permanently totally disabled due to the last injury alone. The case was settled with Employer/Insurer for $200,000 in permanent total disability benefits (100% of the present value of the client’s future PTD payments) and an amount for future medical treatment.
